Cedar Street Counseling is dedicated to helping individuals heal from the pain of trauma, build confidence, renew self esteem, and develop practical skills to manage anxiety and depression. As a counselor, I use a warm, compassionate, and empathetic approach to support you in building resilience to overcome stress and meet your goals.
It is my goal as a counselor to help you reconnect to your innate ability to heal and restore balance in your life. My therapeutic approach is informed by attachment theory, family systems theory, and is rooted in a foundation of mindfulness practice. I have training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, an evidenced based practice for the healing of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other conditions. Through our work together, you may experience improvements in emotion regulation and self compassion.
I am a Mental Health Professional (MHP) and Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Washington State. I earned a Master’s of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the CACREP accredited program at Antioch University Seattle. I have provided counseling and psychotherapy services to adolescents and adults in outpatient mental health care and inpatient residential co-occurring disorder treatment programs in King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties. I have provided counseling to the community on the plateau since 2016. Prior to my counseling practice, I provided social services to individuals experiencing chronic homelessness and co-occurring mental health and substance abuse. When not engaged in clinical practice, I enjoy collecting records, growing organic vegetables and flowers, and tending to my flock of chickens with my husband and son.
